Choosing New Tires
Is It Time For New Tires?
AIs it time for a new set of tires? Tires are not safe to use once the tread depth reaches 2/32″. What’s more, the traction you need may not exist even before your tires reach this minimum tread depth. Also, if you notice other tell-tale signs, such as sidewall cracking or damage that isn’t safe to repair, don’t take a chance. Get new tires. The experienced staff at Dynamic Automotive in Frederick, Maryland, is here to help. We can walk you through the selection process as well as provide all the tire services you need.
What Factors Should You Consider When Buying Tires?
AWhen selecting new tires, you’ll need to consider a few measurements. For instance, the diameter is the distance across the center of the tire. You’ll also need to find the appropriate width (which is the distance across the tread pattern) and aspect ratio (the height of the sidewall from the tread pattern to the edge). These measurements are located on the sticker inside the door jamb of your vehicle as well as printed on the tire. Beyond these specifications, you have choices regarding the features that are important to you. Many drivers opt for all-season tires that will serve them well in nearly all kinds of weather. Performance tires are the go-to for drivers who desire higher speed ratings. Usually, these individuals do a lot of full-speed highway driving. You may also choose specialty tires. These include mud and off-road tires. Their knobby design enables them to handle loose dirt and rocky conditions. Further, if you spend your winters driving through frozen precipitation, you may go with snow tires.
